Archdeacon Sam Rose was elected the sixth bishop of the diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, after being voted in on the fourth ballot at the Nov. 28 electoral synod in 2020.
The Dec. 15 consecration and installation of the bishop-elect took place at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, with the liturgy livestreamed. Bishop John Watton of the diocese of Central Newfoundland and Bishop John Organ of the diocese of Western Newfoundland served as ordaining bishop and co-consecrator, respectively.

He received his B.A. from Memorial University and his Masters of Divinity from Queen’s College, both in St John’s. Bishop Rose was ordained a priest in 2001 and has served in parishes in Labrador and Newfoundland.

St. Philip’s Anglican Cemetery
St. Philip’s Anglican cemetery has a history going back as far as the earliest settlers in the community. Vestry is in the process of exploring the possibility of telling the story of the cemetery, including the old church which once stood there, on a story-board. This board will also include a QR Code which can be scanned to take you to the parish website where even more information can be found.
In the place where the old church once stood there is a Columbarium containing 48 niches, and each niche can hold up to three Urns for burial. Much work have gone into beautifying this sacred area, with the placing of seating benches, shrubs and flowers, soon a storyboard and a plan to place there a small replica of the old church. Some of the work done there was completed by a grant of $2500 from The Anglican Foundation. We are also very thankful to Dawn Cheeseman and Joyce Fewer who coordinated most of the beautification work, along with a lot of help from other parish members.
Currently about half of the Columbaria niches have been sold. The cost of purchasing one is $3000 (no tax) and can be done through the parish office. There are plans to place more units there once the current ones are sold.
We hope that you will visit this site and get an appreciation for all the work done there thus far. It is also a serene place to sit in quietness and meditate.
We also ask everyone to observe the rules and regulations related to the cemetery. It is a large area which requires a lot of time and resources to maintain. We do have “A Perpetual Care Fund” with the hope that enough contributions will be added to it so we can use it in the future to hire someone in the Summer months to care for it. This would certainly be something to leave a legacy for. We also have our on-going “Cemetery Fund” which many contribute to for regular maintenance and upkeep of the cemetery.
*We also advise anyone visiting the cemetery and/or doing work in the cemetery to be very careful as you walk around, there is much uneven ground and other things that might cause someone to stumble or fall. We do our best to make it as safe as possible but it is a very large area, so do be very careful.
